Thursday Morning in the BB15 House
As we join our houseguests this morning, BB has woken them up and told them to get camera ready for tv. The HGs are getting ready to do their pre-pre-pov dr sessions, pick pov players, more dr sessions and play pov.
Since the MVP will be nominating someone, he or she must be notified before the PoV Player picking begins, as the MVP's nominee will need to be among the people guaranteed to play for PoV.
We thought last night that Elissa was completely out about being Rachel's sister. She's out to some, but not all. Those she's not out to suspect her anyway.
Elissa and Helen
Spencer: It's hard to keep up with who's sleeping where and with who.
Carolyn: No kidding!
Andy: I'm pretty sure Big Brother's gonna be mad at me for doin this, but I'm the MVP.
Camera flips to the bathroom
Aaryn: Our parents just tricked us. We're not on Big Brother. We're at fat camp.
The HGs are getting camera ready, speculating about what the PoV comp might be, and, of course, MVP. We should expect about an hour break for the coming PoV picking, as there are so many of them, and this is their first time doing it. Also, many of them were up very late, so their not exactly firing on all cylinders. I relate.
Jeremy is soothing Kaitlin, Candice enters complaining of how tired she is, having gone to bed at 5:30am, and Jeremy removes his hand from Kaitlin's bottom.
Helen, McCrae, GinaMarie, Andy
Helen's sharing a story about an old roommate who watered plants outside in freezing winter while sleepwalking. McCrae shares sleepwalker stories too.. The HGs are all slowly filing in to the living room, as they deem themselves camera ready..
**The PoV Picking is coming up.. They should be notifying the MVP as well today, and when they do, a 3rd person will be nominated. I'm very curious to see how it all goes down.
Aaryn, Amanda, Judd
Aaryn: She hates me. She hates me more than anyone in the house.
**Aaryn's still paranoid about Elissa winning MVP and putting her up.
Aaryn leaves, and Judd and Amanda speculate about the PoV comp. He doesn't think it'll be physical, but he does want to play.
Amanda: I don't want to play. I don't want to have power in my hands this early. I think either way, everything will be ok this week, unless someone decides to change their mind.
Elissa enters and talk turns to the wake up song, which she thinks was designed to mess with them. Several HGs have been complaining about the funk in the house... Everything is starting to smell.
Elissa: I wish I was up for the romance drama last night.
Amanda: Jeremy, Jessie and Kaitlin are caught in a 3 way blowmance.
Elissa: Are you gonna try to play for Veto?
Amanda: mm hmm. Just so I can keep it the way it is.
Elissa: Like, you really wouldn't backdoor me?
Amanda: Here's what's gonna happen.. If you don't go up for the 3rd nom, everyone's gonna think you're the MVP.
Elissa: That's so stupid. I'm the only one who's not lying (about having a BB sibling).
Amanda: If you did win MVP, it would behoove you to disclose that to me and McCrae.
Have Not Room
DR sessions have now begun, and speculation about what's to come continues.
Fishies.. Is it time to pick the PoV players? Pretty please? Nope, not yet.
Small World Room
GinaMarie, Amanda, Nick
GinaMarie and Amanda are counting votes on their combined hands. Aaryn joins them.
Amanda: I feel like we're gonna be here a while, because of our social game. The younger players are sprinting.
GinaMarie: We're kinda the same. We're kinda loud. We're a little more..
Amanda: Straight shooters.
Ginamarie: I don't have to worry about you talkin' behind my back..
Amanda: I think this MVP thing.. I think it's too early to really harm us. No one wants to rock the boat until it's really necessary.
Ginamarie: I think the first vote is gonna be really mixed,
Amanda: i think if Elissa goes up, it'll be unanimous. Or it'll be unanimous for Candice.
Ginamarie: I think Candice is the right choice right now..
Aaryn: It might be smart to keep Elissa.. I'm the only one she doesn't want here. We all have to think about it individually.
Ginamarie: I think keeping Candice in the house is drama too.
Amanda: I think.. If we all know it's either Candice or Elissa first and second week, then we're all like, phew.. Yes, Candice is a really big threat, but there are other people in the house who are going to erupt. If we all agree on that, then we're all safe the 1st 2 weeks. If everybody's gunning for one person..
Ginamarie: And we're all agreed she's the one person..
Amanda: We're all on the same page, but we need a plan B, and I think Candice is a good plan B.
Ginamarie: If she is Rachel's sister, who cares? I'm Bill Clinton's cousin. How's that gonna help me?
Aaryn: She (Rachel) has a fanbase. She can get (Elissa) the votes for MVP every week.
Amanda: But being MVP doesn't keep you from being nominated.
Meanwhile upstairs in HoH on 3 & 4... McCrae is offering Elissa advice on what to do with her MVP power, who to put up. Aha! It's confirmed now.
Elissa has the first MVP.
Elissa & McCrae
Elissa: That's just so flattering. It's bigger than winning a pageant. Aaryn's been so mean to me, I would want to put her up, but that's just stupid. I wanna play the game. I wanna be strategic. I don't want a mean girl to bully me and push me around.
McCrae: Also, if Arryn goes up and gets HGs Choice, she's gonna pick David..
Elissa: You aren't going to put me up.
McCrae: I have to if that's what the house wants, cuz otherwise, I'm f'd. But I'll keep you safe.
Elissa: I don't know that I want to work with you going forward if you wont even commit to me that you're not gonna put me up.
McCrae: You get to put someone up.. Who ever you choose is gonna be so afraid, and we're probably playing veto today.
They're tossing around names as to who to put up.. David...
McCrae: You want to put someone up that you can possibly beat.
Elissa: If you put me up as a replacement nominee, and I stay, then I'm not working with you. If I go up, I'm going home. Aaryn has told everyone in this house terrible things.
McCrae: She doesn't even know how veto works. I think if you pick David, he's gonna play so hard.
Elissa: If you send me home, you're gonna be fighting so hard the entire time..
**Elissa - just win the PoV. Shes on auto-rewind-playback now.
Judd enters the HoH and asks Elissa if she got it. She denies it. He presses.
Elissa: I feel like I'm the only one who has told people everything, and it has screwed me over.
Judd: With me?
Elissa: He said he is going to put me up as a backdoor, if someone comes down.
Judd: Candice will probably go home. She's pissin' people off left and right. I don't think you have anything to worry about.
Elissa: I just feel like I'm going home. I just don't understand why you guys just don't put up one of the big guys who have a showmance already. It's just dumb. It's like a waste of power.
Judd: In the showmances there are 4 people..
Judd leaves them to talk alone. Amanda comes in. Elissa tells her she needs to talk to McCrae. Amanda stays anyway.
McCrae & Elissa, cont'd.
McCrae: I think you'll stay. You can talk sh*t about me.
Elissa: Yeah, but if Jeremy and Nick are working with him? I wish you had just told them to throw it.
McCrae: It's not about Rachel. It's about being tactful... getting into the cattiness with them. If you put up David, and it's you against David.. You can tell everyone, it's better to keep me, and get out a stronger competitor. The backdoor on him is just perfect. If you put him up and he doesn't win Veto, he's f'd. Especially with the showmance sh*t.
Elissa: I can't believe it this nuts this early in the game.
McCrae: And with the MVP thing.. As long as there's a big physical threat on the block,. you wont go home. You can use so many things against him. Why send home me? I'm a girl. I'm weak. O
m gonna campaign for you.
Elissa: That sounds weird. I'm gonna put you up, but then I'm gonna campaign for you?
McCrae: I'll be like, this is our strongest shot at David. This might be the best strategic decision, to be honest.
11:43am Elissa continues trying to convince McCrae to not put her up in any scenario this week.
McCrae: If we do this plan, it's gonna be perfect. You might wanna ask production if you get to choose the backdoor, or if I do. This is the best for your game, because yeah, we do have MVP in the pocket. If you can get the waterworks goin'.. You just have to tell everyone you're crazy.
Elissa: I have a child and a husband that matter the rest of my life.
McCrae: You have to be like, screw it, I'm crazy, I'm a loose cannon, I'm goin' home next week.
11:57 - Spencer and Jeremy enter HoH.. Elissa leaves. McCrae tells them that he told her she's going up. They don't understand why. He explains, kinda.
Spencer: Statistically, she has a terrible chance of playing (for PoV), much less playing an winning. OK.. How can I help you endure the fall out?
McCrae: Just be cool with her.
Jeremy: She already looks like the kind of person who cracks under pressure, with all the botox.
Amanda joins the HoH crew, saying she just took one for the team with Helen, and if it weren't for Elissa, she'd be completely under the radar. Amanda asks directly if Elissa said she won MVP. McCrae lies to her and says no.
***OK! So completes out first morning report of the BB15 season. I need a quick break. I'll open an Afternoon Report before 1pm BBT.
